Compression Loss
Troika
‘Compression Loss’ is Troika’s second solo exhibition at OMR gallery. Troika is a collaborative contemporary art practice formed in 2003 by Eva Rucki (b. 1976, Germany), Conny Freyer (b. 1976, Germany) and Sebastien Noel (b. 1977, France).
For ‘Compression Loss’ Troika will premiere two new bodies of work alongside existing sculptures and installations. Giving the exhibition its title, ‘Compression Loss’ is a new series of sculptures in which Troika take mythological figures and forms and deconstruct them into separate ‘slices’. The sculptures will be shown alongside a series of large-scale tapestries comprised of copper tape, for which Troika have translated and reenacted an algorithm on a human scale.
The works in the exhibition stem from Troika’s continuing interest in the various models and belief systems used to detail and understand the world. Incorporating the opposing frameworks of technological advancement and mythology, Troika’s works investigate how the application of a purely rational and scientific method onto practical life is often at odds with the subjective and unpredictable.

OMR was founded in 1983 and through more than 400 exhibitions and 18 years of participation in art fairs, has developed an identity as an avant-garde contemporary art space for promoting new artistic voices throughout Latin America and the world.
